In the first episode of “Live With Gregory Pappas,” The Pappas Post publisher interviews Archbishop Nikitas, head of the 500,000-strong Greek Orthodox community of Great Britain, an Archdiocese that covers faithful in England, Wales, Ireland and Scotland.
Born and raised in Tarpon Springs, Florida, Archbishop Nikitas has served the Orthodox Christian Church in many continents.
Prior to his elevation as Archbishop of Great Britain in June 2019, Nikitas served as Metropolitan of Hong Kong, where he ministered to faithful in diverse locals in Southeast Asia. He also served for years in various capacities in Chicago and at the Patriarch Athenagoroas Institute in Berkley, California.
The Facebook live interview was broadcast live on The Pappas Post’s Facebook channel on Monday, April 13, 2020, with more than 10,000 participating from all corners of the world.
Readers submitted questions beforehand which included subjects such as receiving communion during the COVID-19 pandemic. The Archbishop answered those questions while offering his own thoughts and telling viewers about how Great Britain’s Church has responded to the pandemic.
